With a keen eye for framing and use of color, Ytje creates drawings in which concept, research and skilful drawing are intertwined. Always challenging herself, she recently developed her new style, the papercut, to complement her pencil work and digital drawings. Her body of work is elegant: it has just the right amount of detail, be it richly layered or stylized and to the point.
Her versatility isn't limited to drawing alone; she also writes. letting her own peculiar brand of opinion and observation shine, be it about socio-political subjects, gaming, literature or music.
